Amethyst Pendant Designs in Shimmering Purple Hues
Believe it or not, there was a time when amethyst was considered among precious stones and on par with diamonds, rubies, and emeralds. However, the discovery of huge deposits of amethyst in Brazil and other parts of the world relegated this dazzling gem to the cadre of semi-precious stones. Amethyst might have fallen from its precious status, but it hasn’t fallen from its glory or demand. With its vibrant colour and vivacious appeal, this beautiful gem continues to charm jewellery enthusiasts and fashionistas across the globe.
Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz and the most sought-after member of the quartz family. The colour of the stone can range from light violet to a deep purple bordering on red depending on the presence of trace elements, iron impurities, and irradiation. Be that as it may and whatever label it is classified under, a piece of jewellery set with amethysts is a wonder to behold and a treasure to own. At BlueStone, we offer our customers a fabulous range of products set with this shimmering gemstone. Our amethyst pendant designs are handcrafted for modern day fashionistas who want to up their bling quotient with the whimsical hues of purple.

More about These Shimmering Purple Stones
Amethyst has been in use for a long time. It was used as prayer beads by Tibetan monks and as a mystical remedy for intoxication by the Greeks who embedded their wine cups with these stones. In more recent times, amethyst is considered the birthstone for those born in the month of February. So if you have your or a loved one’s birthday coming up in February, then an amethyst pendant would be the perfect gift to ask for or give.
Amethyst pendants’ price varies based on a number of factors including the size of the stone, the number of other gemstones, and the weight of gold used in the piece. There are not many stones that exhibit the wonderful purple tones that you see in an amethyst. Hence purchasing amethyst jewellery if you do not own any would enhance your gemstone collection without a doubt.
